24 days from today I am getting hitched- 24 days! Man, that’s getting close.
Last Friday my friends threw me the most perfect, personalized, and DIY’d bachlorette party. It was amazing and they are lovely. I am not the kind of girl that wants to go out and party in a tiara and sash, and seriously, I do not want to drink from a penis shaped straw. Not. My. Style.
You know what is my style? Superheros.
Ignore those gallon booze buckets. That is of no concern.
My friends, from right to left: Wolverine, Captain America, The Flash, Thor, Ironman, and Wonder Woman. Then me- Batman! Woo hoo! (Yes, I know we mixed DC and Marvel- get over it). They did just enough that we all looked amazing and clearly our characters, but were still comfortable and walking around Boston feeling only a fun level of ridiculous. OH, and it was all a surprise to me. I was just told to make sure I wore a black shirt.
Man! They made so much stuff! Just on me I had leather arm bracers and a mask (handmade by my friends’ husband! no joke!), a bat symbol made of felt and velcro for my shirt, about 9 million comic word rings, and a glittery black cape. The yellow, plastic earrings are all mine. And were a coincidence.
In addition to making everyone capes, my maid of honor (Thor) also made goodie bags for everyone that included batman pins, glow sticks, batman bracelets, batman pencils, and nips ;). Ironman and The Flash made felt masks for us all (and then, apparently, Ironman had an identity crisis and turned into The Hulk).
The comic rings, made by Captain America, were a huge hit. We took as many as we could fit in our purses to the bar with us and were shoving them in each others faces all night. She printed the words out and then glue them to cardboard, then attached a circular cardboard ring to the back with hot glue.
The Mardi Gras beads were a bonus, one of the bar patrons thought we were awesome and handed them over.
I’m sure I’m missing something, like Wonder Woman’s glittery headband and wrist cuffs and laso of truth– there was just so much! Wolverine had freaking gloves on, and she was dedicated to wearing them. It was very exciting and I am so appreciative. Thanks guys!
Also, dear friends, if you would like any of these pictures to not be on the internet just let me know. 🙂 I’m following my student’s advice- do it without asking and apologize later if you have to. haha
